    ...is not how I would describe my chickens!

    I'm still kicking myself for not having my camera, but this morning when going out to feed and water my chicks I had quite a surprise. One of my buff orpington's came out looking for a treat and when I dumped the old mason jar of water out I placed it on the ground on its side while I attached the fresh one. Not a millisecond later, my BO ran inside the jar looking for a treat and got stuck. She was just small enough to climb in, but not small enough to turn around. After ten minutes of me trying to ease her out, she freaked and managed to back out on her own. Thank goodness, I was beginning to think I'd have to carefully break the jar to get her out!

    WHY did I not have the camera!?

    hmmm... I will have to be more careful with my gregarious chicks and putting things in there they can get themselves stuck in...at least she is out with no trauma to you or her.
    take care!

    My BO are 3 1/2 months old. They are sweet, but my God, they are silly. They are not the sharpest beaks in the coop by any means, but I love them. I wish you had a camera too...I probably would have busted a gut laughing at the poor dear.
